Rochester Police: Duo also Allegedly Possessed Drugs
Batavia men found with loaded
9mm ghost gun in Rochester


Two Batavia men were arrested after they were found with a loaded 9mm ‘Ghost gun,’ Rochester police said in a press release.

Daniel H. Mooney Jr., 35, and Matthew Oppel, 35, were both charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, both felonies, and misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The two were found with an illegal ghost gun that does not have serial numbers and both men are not allowed to possess weapons because of previous convictions.

The men were found in a car parked at a vacant house on Sullivan Street and both were in possession of fentanyl and cocaine, police said.

Ghost guns can be made at home with a computer or cell phone and a three-dimensional (3D) "printing" or manufacturing device used instead of an ink printer. 

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is an additive manufacturing process that creates a physical object from a digital design. The process works by laying down thin layers of material in the form of liquid or powdered plastic, metal or cement, and then fusing the layers together.
